At the time of first writing, it had been six months since my version of the MBP WRR 3 spreadsheet was drafted up and the rampage kicked into high gear (fueled by a need to eliminate Powerjohn once and for all :p). In celebration of this, I dug through the revision history and gathered some data about the progress we've made during this time. I think it's fun to look back at how much we've managed to improve over the past seven months, so here's a little chronology of the highlights.
Skip to the bottom if you just wanna see some charts. The charts have been updated on Christmas Day (December 25th) in celebration of getting 100% improvement.
This is where the data starts. We are already partway through the WR process, and some of Powerjohn's times have already been camped and beaten, but he still leads the standings with a total of 33 recorded WRs. Xelna is next with 28, and hPerks and Kalle are tied for third with 8 apiece. Rosie, who would go on to become the leader in these standings, at this point has only 3 recorded WRs.
Among the people with recorded and unrecorded WRs who would go on to be eliminated from the rampage, we have:
- Powerjohn (33 recorded)
- Xelna (28 recorded)
- BlastedMarble (4 recorded, 1 unrecorded)
- dushine (Pink Fold Maze and Newton Knew Best)
- Battlecube314 (Teleport Training)
- deskjethp (Gravity Shaker)
- iMacmatician (Diamond Travel)
- Jackrb (Thief)
- Nihahhat (Dual Perspectives)
- HiGuy (Despair)
- ivan100sic (Marble Mini Golf)
- Popokatepetl (Learning the Anti-Recoil)
- ROY1790 (Learn the Bouncy Floor)
At this point, the total MBP WR time is 46:29.12. Only 50 of the 147 levels have been improved on video from MBP WRR2.
April 30: CylinderKnot finds a glitched path on Teleport Training. The WR is quickly snatched up by Rosie at 8.89. Sefaro joins the rampage with 10.11 Sandstorm. Sub-10 would follow soon. Lee joins the rampage unofficially with a 4.42 on Helicopter Monster Course. After the .rec got .rekt, he would later improve this on video.
The Teleport Training path and WR are invalidated. Rosie later reclaims the WR with 12.31.
Powerjohn dips below 30 WRs after Macstr0yer picks up Gravity Knot.
May 9: Powerjohn strikes back with a 12.83 Battlecube, stealing the path from hPerks' previous WR, as well as an 8.28 on Gap Aimer.
May 26: Kalle cuts >2 seconds off Beach Party with some ungodly new path. For the first time, Powerjohn and Xelna are tied for WRs, with 23 each.
May 28: hPerks reclaims Battlecube with 12.37, using a new path.
May 29: Powerjohn beats Xelna by 0.01 on Recoil Training, to take sole lead in the standings again. Frostfire, with a 47.98 Ultimate Tree, not only proves Sefaro wrong in saying "I honestly don't think anyone can beat this", but also joins Powerjohn and Xelna to be the third person in the double digits (10 WRs).
May 30: Frostfire finds an alien path on Morph, bringing the time down from >30 seconds to an astonishing 19.94. This is the only level to have over a third of its WR time cut off between rampages.
This pushes the total number of levels improved to 74, now over 50% for the first time.
May 31: hPerks cuts exactly 6 seconds off Battlecube Revisited with a new path, to claim 2 out of the 4 Battlecubes and 10 total WRs. This brings the total WR time to sub-46 minutes. Macstr0yer also joins the double-digit club by beating Powerjohn's 7.46 on Busy Bee.
Powerjohn and Xelna are tied once again, at 20 WRs each, after hPerks beats Powerjohn's Nukesweeper with a couple tweaks.
Xelna is the first to dip below 20, when his Jump Tutorial is beaten by Macstr0yer.
Powerjohn drops below 20 almost immediately afterwards, when Xedron beats his time on Combo Course with 34.65. Unfortunately, at this point hPerks had already found the new path for Combo Course that he would later use to take this WR and bring the level below 30 seconds. Frostfire takes back his WR on the aptly-named Thief, knocking Jackrb out of the rampage.
June 3: Kalle reclaims Powerup Practice after having his path stolen by Powerjohn. For the first time, Powerjohn is now second place in WRs, to Xelna. Frostfire is hot on their tail, with now 14 WRs. hPerks gets 32.90 on Combo Course, and says "sub 32 is possible but I'll shoot for low 32s".
After a long grind, Sefaro gets sub-8 Icichole, taking down another Powerjohn record. Xedron improves Platform Race 2 by 0.02, to join the double-digit club with 10 WRs.
June 5: Powerjohn re-reclaims Powerup Practice, to jump back up to a tie for first, at 17 WRs, with Xelna.
Xedron comments about 9.18 Newton Knew Best: "not ever happening".
June 6: Frostfire pulls off his coveted Space Station path for a >20 second improvement from the previous rampage.
June 7: Kalle re-re-reclaims Powerup Practice, dethroning Powerjohn from first place in WRs once again. About this hard-fought victory, Kalle commented: "FIGHT THE KALE - YOU WILL FAIL"
June 11: Lee does the impossible and beats Powerjohn's Daedal Helix WR. This leaves Powerjohn with only 15 WRs, now tied with Frostfire for second.
June 12: Powerjohn fights back with two new WRs: 19.75 Stamina and 37.88 Slowropes, to reclaim first place in WRs.
June 15: Frostfire pulls off an unbelievable sub-19 Stamina, with a totally new path involving four edge hits in place of a traplaunch. This may now be the only level where the traplaunch path is both easier and slower than the non-traplaunch path. With this, Powerjohn is now once again tied with Xelna, with 16 WRs each. Frostfire has 15.
June 18: Powerjohn uses Frostfire's path on Trigonometry for 28.11, to move back into sole first place.
June 19: Frostfire takes back Trigonometry with 27.73, leaving the standings once again 16-16-15.
June 21: Rosie joins the double-digit club with 19.51 Triple Decker.
Powerjohn is knocked down to second place in WRs once again, after a 17.28 Double LoopLoop by Sefaro. After this, Powerjohn would never again have the most WRs.
June 23: Rosie claims Getting Squeezed with a crazy trap.
June 24: Rosie surges into joint first place with Xelna, after getting 6.00 Treachery and 6.64 Jump Boost Aim. Powerjohn is knocked down to joint third with Macstr0yer.
June 25: Rosie takes the sole lead in WRs with a 13.97 Platformer.
June 26: Hitgod gets 4.07 Quaked Path unrecorded, with a crazy double edge hit tweak. It was the last unrecorded WR to ever be gotten online.
With a 33.77 Perplexingness, Frostfire joins Rosie and Xelna to take joint lead in WRs, with 16 apiece.
July 2: Kalle pulls off 1:14.40 on The Ultimate Friction Challenge, for a >10 second improvement with a "sexy tweak".
The total number of levels improved on video is now 100, after Hitgod pulls off a 14.22 Bumpy Highway.
July 4: Frostfire jumps into sole first place with 17 WRs, the newest being 6.19 Slip Up. He would later get sub-6. Hitgod ends his recent string of impressive WRs with a 16.96 Double LoopLoop. Sefaro, who had been neck and neck with him for this WR, commented: "k im done".
PQ releases. No new MBP WRs are achieved for over a month.
Nihahhat promises to buy a grass jelly drink for whoever beats Newton Knew Best.
August 8: Regislian, who had been busy with PQ until release, breaks the WR drought with 9.45 on Orange Fold Maze.
After months of work, Eguy finally pulls off his Platform Mayhem path for 38.45. "I actually screamed like an 8 year old" - Eguy
September 18: RadiantVibe makes his debut in the rampage by beating the impossible WR on Learn the Bouncy Floor, with new tweaks! Powerjohn gets WR on Cardcaddy's Gem Collection, for a total of 11.
A bombshell drops as Eguy's pre-rrec times are invalidated due to low quality. He would later improve all of these runs except Frictional Ascent, which was re-accepted.
September 23: Kalle beats Powerjohn on Wall Master, to knock him out of the double-digit club. He now has 9 WRs. Xelna has 10. Rosie gets 0.67 Gem Travel to take sole first place, with 18 WRs. She would not give up this lead again for almost 3 months.
September 28: hPerks begins a streak of 13 WRs in 10 days, starting with improvements on three of his own WRs.
September 29: Regislian beats Xelna on Frictional Climb, knocking Xelna out of the double-digit club.
October 1: Rosie beats Xelna on Tunnel Vision to become the first player besides Powerjohn and Xelna to reach 20 WRs.
October 3: hPerks beats Powerjohn on Astroflight, leaving him with only 5 WRs left.
October 4: Regislian finally pulls off his path on Ice Diamond for almost 5 seconds of improvement, from 11.28 to 6.29. RadiantVibe improves Xelna's Widow's Peak by 0.01, leaving Xelna with just 5 WRs, tied with Powerjohn. hPerks gets 2.67 Learn the Edge Hit to join Rosie in first place, with 19 WRs each. It wouldn't last long, as Rosie soon gets two more WRs, on Michael's Adventure MBP and Learning the Anti-Recoil.
October 8: Rosie does the impossible and claims Newton Knew Best with a time of 9.15. "Gimme dat, Nihah." - Rosie Rosie also steals Macstr0yer's thunder on Mini Mountain with a 3.98. This was the last remaining beginner level to be improved on video.
October 10: Regislian finds a new path for sub-3 on Arch Acropolis.
deskjethp "the man the myth the legend" is finally knocked off the board by Nature Freak, with a 4.04 Gravity Shaker.
After days of joint effort alongside RadiantVibe and Rosie, Macstr0yer pulls off 3.71 on Take a Stroll to beat Powerjohn's "unbelievable" run. This was the last remaining intermediate level to be improved on video. Nature Freak also takes down a Powerjohn record, with 8.20 on Gap Aimer.
Finally, AugustMK7 makes his debut by beating Xelna's long-standing record on Hazardous House.
At the end of this busy day, Xelna and Powerjohn are both down to 2 WRs, and less than 10 levels remain to be improved on video.
October 16: Lee claims Bent Reality with 48.33, not only beating Xelna's WRR2 time, but doing it without the screenshot glitch! This was the last remaining director's cut level to be improved on video. hPerks shaves another second off Battlecube Revisited, bringing the total world record time to sub-45 minutes.
Only two days after the intermediate levels were thought to have been completed, Hitgod discovers that he no longer has his recording of Spin Practice. He assigns himself to the level again.
After weeks of effort, hPerks gets sub-30 Combo Course with an original path.
October 25: Eguy claims Cardcaddy's Gem Collection with 65.67. Powerjohn is down to his last WR, on Slowropes.
October 26: Regislian takes down Xelna on Don't Jump with 0.66. Xelna is down to his last WR, on Dizzying Heights.
After many of us had tried and failed, HiGuy's crazy unrecorded WR on Despair is finally beaten by newcomer DKman00.
October 29: hPerks finds a new path for 31.63 Frictional Battlecube, to claim 3 of the 4 battlecubes. He would later improve this to sub-30 with only a couple tweaks to this path.
October 31: Hitgod successfully re-records Spin Practice with a 5.44, to complete the intermediate levels once again, as well as out-PJing PJ on Recoil Training by cutting off yet another 0.01s.
November 4: Powerjohn takes down Xelna's final WR on Dizzying Heights, with a time of 16.45. Xelna is now eliminated from the rampage.
November 7: Hitgod pulls off a new path for sub-32 Ramp Madness.
November 10: Frostfire, after months of hiatus, is pulled back into the rampage (too much HYPE) with a 34.96 Slowropes, beating Powerjohn's 37.88 and leaving him with only one more WR left.
November 13: Hitgod gets 39.75 Par Pit, "a sub to rival the greats" - hPerks
November 22: DKman00 strikes again with a 4.07 Quaked Path - the last unrecorded WR to be beaten - after thousands of attempts and tons of heartbreakingly close misses.
Another devilish unrecorded WR is finally conquered after months of effort, this time by Macstr0yer with 2.70 Ice Cold Pass. This was the last remaining advanced level to be improved on video.
Powerjohn's last remaining WR, on Dizzying Heights, is beaten by Lee with a time of 16.42! The quest to eliminate PJ once and for all comes to a close after almost a year of effort. Xedron begins improving his own times, starting with a stunning 28.57 Hug the Wall.
December 2: hPerks finds a new path for 31.38 Ramp Madness, to end the heated rivalry between Hitgod and Xedron. He would soon find two more paths, one for 30.47, and the final one for sub-30 (29.69).
December 4: Rosie improves her Slope Madness path to 2.36 - tantalizingly close to sub-1 second.
December 8: hPerks finds a new path for 0.86 Slope Madness, hitting the finish without time running out for the first time.
After beating Rosie's WR on Mini Marble Golf: DC, hPerks joins her at the top of the standings, with 25 WRs each.
Soon afterwards, Xedron beats Rosie's WR on Jump Boost Aim, leaving hPerks in sole first place for the first time. Rosie and Xedron would battle it out for this record before Xedron clinched it with a surprising tweak.
Sefaro, having once reached 3 WRs, is now sadly eliminated from the rampage, after Rosie beats his time on Slippery Steps. Rosie is now once again tied with hPerks for most WRs.
December 12: Xedron improves his Bouncing Fun to 14.58. As PJ might say - he skipped the 15s!
In another unfortunate development for Eguy, his Floor Climb rrec is discovered not to have been saved properly to the server, and the time is thus unrecorded. This increases the total unrecorded levels to three (TTotTS and BCF being the others). The level is re-assigned to Eguy.
December 15: hPerks finds a new path for 3.63 NeonTech (later 2.60), taking sole lead once again with 26 WRs. Once again, it doesn't last long, as Hitgod soon demolishes hPerks' 11.23 on Learn the Wall Hit.
A new path on Strategy Climb, discovered independently by 4 people, is pulled off for the first time by Eguy with 15.20. Xedron skips the 13s with a 12.85 Bouncing Fun, bringing the total WRR3 time down to 44:14.13 - over 5 minutes below the total time in WRR2!
December 23: DKman00 improves Despair to 9.30, with a traplaunch from another world.
December 24: Lee takes down The Tale of the Tall Skyscraper with 2:16.73, knocking out another unrecorded run. He would later improve this to 2:07, which would knock down the 44 minute barrier.
The same day, Eguy successfully re-records Floor Climb with a sub-25, leaving only Battlecube Finale unrecorded.
After countless hours of streaming and a couple heartbreakingly close misses, Rosie pulls off Battlecube Finale 3:21.37. The WRR is now 100% complete!
Another new path on Strategy Climb, discovered by Regislian, is pulled off by Hitgod for 13.10.
After battling it out with Macstr0yer, DKman00 claims Keep on Rollin' with a 2.76, over a second improved from WRR2, using a new path.
January 14: DKman00 ends a heated competition on Widow's Peak with a 6.96.
January 25: Hitgod gets sub-10 on Slippery Steps, beating Rosie's WR and knocking her off of joint first place in total WRs. hPerks becomes the sole leader, with 24 WRs.
January 28: Rosie strikes back, taking hPerks' WR on Tornado Launch and tying him in the standings once again. The two agree to a mutual truce.
January 29: Eguy smashes Kalle's record on Master the Super Jump by over 5 seconds, with a 35.63. Xedron finds a new path for Cubed Maze, and gets the WR within 10 minutes. As a wise man put it: "HOW"
After "many hours of blood, sweat and tears", Kalle finally pulls off 1:08.72 on The Ultimate Friction Challenge, the last planned improvement for the rampage.
February 7: Xedron replicates his unbeatable unrecorded run of Ultimate Tree with a 46.37.
After battling with Xedron on Ramps, Kalle takes back his "very well optimized" Ramps WR with 17.13.
After Matan denies Rosie's BCF run for glaring mistakes, Xedron camps the level for a day and obliterates her time with a 3:07.
February 12: Rosie uses a new path by DKman00 on Tornado launch for 7.78.
February 13: Rosie gets 5.619 on Rolling to Eternity, the first run ever without time bonus restarting, finishing up the WRR in a tie with hPerks for most world records.
This is where the data ends. hPerks and Rosie lead the standings with 23 WRs each, followed by Frostfire, Macstr0yer, Hitgod, Xedron, and Kalle.
The total MBP WR time is now 43:06.42. All 147 levels have been improved on video.
I might continue to keep this updated as more progress happens. For now, here's some charts.
